We came across a nice interview that Brett Larner did with Jeffrey Eggleston who ran 2:10:52 last weekend.http://japanrunningnews.blogspot.com/2014/07/too-much-reverence-for-210-and-not.htmlWe loved this quote:
I think there’s a cultural problem in the U.S. and elsewhere. Too much reverence for 2:10 and not enough drive for 2:07 or 2:08. People think that 2:10 means you’ve arrived.
A good read. Eggleston complains a bit about the rabbit whom he thinks was aiding the top Kenyan in the race.
He's also got a first-hand account of how Yuki Kawauchi was taken out (a guy clipped a cone and shot it in front of Yuki).
